According to reports, Lions loose forward Vincent Tshituka has turned down offers from the English Premiership to join the Sharks in Durban.
Tshituka, 23 was reportedly on the radar of English side Harlequins, but is now expected to make Durban his new home.
Tshituka has been one – of very few – standout Lions players in recent years and appears to be the next in a long line of players signed by the Sharks.
As reported by The South African website, in addition to the recent captures of Siya Kolisi, Bongi Mbonambi and Eben Etzebeth, the Sharks have now set their sights on Rohan Janse van Rensburg.
Democratic Republic of the Congo-born Tshituka is reportedly engaged in the awful process of applying for a South African passport.
But we all know Home Affairs too well!
Should it be sorted out at some point, he will become eligible for the Springboks.
Tshituka and his younger brother Emmanuel are both currently on the books of the Lions.
